  10. I love your tip about adding fried gram dal flour.... will try it next time I make chaklis. I too get the texture turns out a bit hard or too soft if I add extra butter.

  11. I'm feeling ashamed while seeing all the murukku recipes that have been posted all these days. I just love murukku and don't want to share it whenever my aunt brings it. We don't get good quality murukku here. Still lazy me, has not dared to try it till now.

  14. can you help me know more about pottukadalai flour,what is it and how to get it / make it?

    1. Pottukadalai flour is nothing but fried gram/roasted chana dal flour. You can get the fried gram dal/pottukadalai/ roasted chana dal from any Indian store, then grind into fine powder in a blender and use it.
      Note: chana dal is not same as roasted chana dal.

  15. This turned out really well. Thanks for the recipe!
